John Kelly Reveals The Sad Truth

There once was a time when honor, truth, and principles meant something. That time was not that long ago.

In the name of tolerance and diversity, America has shifted to a society of confusion. Right and wrong is questioned. Fundamental morality is skewed and distorted.

In recent events, we see this defiance to hold to good character in the democratic representative from Florida, Frederica Wilson.

President Trump was dishonestly chastised for a condolence call he gave to the grieving wife of a Green Beret soldier who recently lost his life in “an ambush in Niger on Oct. 4, along with three other soldiers”, according to Fox News.

White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly paraphrased Trumps’s conversation with Green Beret La David Johnson’s wife in a press conference:

“[Green Beret La David Johnson] he’s a brave man, a fallen hero, he knew what he was getting himself into because he enlisted. There’s no reason to enlist; he enlisted. And he was where he wanted to be, exactly where he wanted to be, with exactly the people he wanted to be with when his life was taken.

These sentiments are traditional when speaking to those who have fallen in the line of duty. Gen. Kelly validates this truth by recounting his own heartfelt account of being delivered the gut-wrenching news of his son’s death.

Marine casualty officer Gen. Joseph Dunford told Kelly after his son was killed in an explosion in Afghanistan, that “He said, he was doing exactly what he wanted to do when he was killed”, according to Fox News.

The appropriate and sincere phone call by Trump was claimed to have lacked “compassion” and “sensitivity” per Rep. Wilson.

Rep. Wilson said on her personal government website

Rather than engage in a petty war of words with Mr. Trump, it is so much more important to embrace and support the families and honor these fallen heroes.”

How ironic to issue a statement that makes you look like the bigger person when this whole dispute over the respect of the phone call was started by you.

It should have been laid to rest when the call ended. Trump did a kind act by volunteering to call the widow himself, which is not typical or required because he truly felt for the fallen heroes and their families.

Fox News reported on the White House press conference when John Kelly said it well known how many of us are feeling about the shameful display by Wilson:

White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly criticized Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) for politicizing the “sacred call” between a president and the next of kin to a soldier killed in action.

Kelly said he was “stunned” that a “member of Congress would listen in to that conversation.”

A call about the death of a loved one is a personal and intimate moment. It was inappropriate for Rep. Wilson to stick around for such a moment and listen in.

It is disheartening that an issue such as the deaths of those who gave their lives in honor for this great country is being politicized by a left-wing member in an attempt to take a stab at President Trump and his administration.

It goes to show the loss of sacredness for things that were once held with esteem for their aptitude for moral rightness.

Gen. Kelly said in his recognition of this fact according to the White House press conference transcripts:

I just thought the selfless devotion that brings men and women to die on the battlefield, I just thought it might be sacred,

You know, when I was a kid growing up, a lot of things were sacred in our country. Women were sacred, looked upon with great honor. That’s obviously not the case anymore as we see from recent cases. Life — the dignity of life — is sacred. That’s gone. Religion, that seems to be gone as well.”

How did things get so turned around in this nation? Women are objectified now more than ever. It happens so naturally now that it isn’t even noticed, most often, when it happens.

The sanctity of life is taken for granted as citizens kill their young, and decide which lives they feel matter.

Religion used to be the center of most family’s lives, giving them absolute truth, and a solid foundation to moral correctness. Now, religion is considered an invasion to sound logic and political objectivity.

This is not the first battle that Rep. Wilson has picked with Trump; she has disputed his immigration policies and travel bans just to name a few.

She, also, refused to attend Trump’s inauguration, so she is no stranger to inappropriate disrespect when she wants to politicize a moment.

Thank you to all the men and women who served, and are serving, in the armed forces. You are the backbone of this nation and you’ve given hope and a home to so many.

Please let us know what you think about Rep. Wilson’s attack of President Trump’s personal phone call with the soldier’s widow.
